Sky Sports News Team can confirm that League 1 team Peterborough United are now in a legal battle with the FA over the signing of their 30 plus goal scorer Britt Assombalonga and their new venture into administration. The FA claim that the signing of Britt Assombalonga with Watford was used with illegal money by the Peterborough United Chairman Darragh MacAnthony. The FA Claim that Mr. MacAnthony counterfeited money to sign the DR Congo International after all his money from Dwight Gayle was spent with a new stand in Peterborough's Stadium, London Road. Sky Sports were able to catch an interview with Mr. MacAnthony about the FA Allegations:
SKY SPORTS: Mr. MacAnthony, lets start this off with an obvious question. Did you counterfeit money to sign Britt Assombalonga
DARRAGH MACANTHONY: I promised myself I would be loyal and not tell anything but the truth in this scenario. So to answer your question directly, no I didn't counterfeit money.
SKY SPORTS: So why are you and the club under fire from the FA?
DARRAGH MACANTHONY: Because I used, not created, counterfeit money while buying Britt Assombalonga. I'm not going to be able to tell you the source as I agreed to keep him anonymous, but at the time I didn't realise I was getting counterfeit money.
SKY SPORTS: What do you mean by 'I didn't realise'
DARRAGH MACANTHONY: ?.No comment.
Rumours have it the club is now under Administration of 5 Million pounds and The FA will put the club under a Transfer Embargo, stop the new Moyes End Stand being built, give them a point deduction and demote them to Level 12 of the English Pyramid. These have to be the darkest of times for Peterborough, but The FA do not take kindly to Counterfeit Money and even under a small Administration the club will go under a lot of hefty punishments.
